it was relaxing , lovely ,relaxing time,

The time on the boat was so relaxing , fun, so enjoyable. the young man that was driving the boat, was full of information and the way he told it was awesome. He deserve a pay rise. Just one thing, we found it very hard to find the boats mooring, didn't know it was to do will the bar. If we had know it would of been a lot easy to find.

Fab cruise along the river

Boat decorated with cute bunting, grab a drink from the bar and take it onboard! Cruising along listening to stories from the skipper and sipping on wine was just perfect. Would recommend.

Really lovely cruise. Wish we could have done 50 mins but it was fully booked. Clearly everyone loves it. Very comfortable and spacious boats and you can take drinks on board. The guide was very knowledgable and funny. Thank you very much for an enjoyable afternoon.
